It’s time for Kpopalypse roundup!  Let’s check out some new releases!

In 2012 B.A.P had international k-pop fans in the palm of their hand with their great punchy rock-based debut songs.

If A.C.E’s label want to make some real money forget about cryptobullshit and just get the boys to do A2 size pin-up calendars like the firefighers do in Australia because our government is too stingy to fund public services, clear land properly or fight climate change so shit just burns to the ground all the time.
